Members' interests

Members' interests must be declared on a public register. This is managed by Wiltshire Council, and is online. You can see the Register here.

Becoming a councillor

The Council always welcomes and encourages interest from any eligible elector who is considering becoming a Councillor. Vacancies will be advertised on this website, and on the Public Notice Boards opposite The Raven pub and outside The Village Hall. If you would like to get more involved in your community, and are considering becoming a councillor, then you can watch a video here.
